  3. we pay troops a fortune to defend against trump's fascists, the capital of capitalism for our capitol's businesses was lost by republicanism "business minds," thrown away, trumpian.

  4. We have the insurgents to thank for their lack of business and partially covid…but mainly the mob has brought the need for extreme security. I pray that all these businesses will be blessed 100 times over for their sacrifice.

  5. It is bad that the businessmen are hurting but as she said the city is used for government too…

    Look at it this way: we need to take some days for the government and some days for the businessmen… today it was government, the business still have a load of holidays and Black Friday and all that… the inauguration of the president can't always be another business opportunity… specially after Trump and his militias have threatened to attack the inauguration.

  6. Didn't we just had a big insurrection in DC trying to take over the capital. What do you think we should do have a swearing in ceremony and death valley. You'd report fly on a piece of paper maybe think it had any merit.

  7. thank the insurrection for business loss thats why security is high to protect the people

  8. There's just so much talk of peace and security going on though… Right after the U.S. Govt. declared War on Heaven! That's pretty much unheard of anywhere ever though?

  9. Cant the 25k Troops take a break from MREs and go out to eat in shifts after the inauguration



    GOOD RIDDANCE —-TR 💩 MP—- 💩 💩 💩 💩 💩

  11. They cab sue the Trump, Rudy, Eric, and all the terrorists for lose income.

  12. Now do a story on the myth makers that didn't want Trump to "concede" to a lawful democratic voting process…

  13. It was a bright cold day in " January " and the clocks were striking 13.

  14. Those businesses should be open to the guard.

  15. I imagine COVID must be hittin’ the prostitutiin’ business pretty hard 🥺

  16. Yes well the invention of the automobile was a blow to horseshoe makers but whatcha gonna do?

  17. Aww the millionaire business owners won't be able to get their bonuses, how sad

  18. They should sell online. We are all still buying online…

  19. Well then that should be Joe Biden and, Harris's first government rule! Make sure that the Washington DC businesses get a infusion of cash! To replace any merchandise that they would have been able to sell at the inauguration.

  20. The able decision laparoscopically deliver because chard unpredictably dress including a painful magician. dull, psychotic thomas

  21. Did journalism just get invented today? Small businesses are primarily suffering for reason that started a year ago

  22. It was a lovely angle to cover most people would have missed that little piece 😔😔😔😔😔😔💭

  23. Then Jesus said to the crowds and to his disciples: “The teachers of the law and the Pharisees sit in Moses’ seat. So you must be careful to do everything they tell you. But do not do what they do, for they do not practice what they preach. They tie up heavy, cumbersome loads and put them on other people’s shoulders, but they themselves are not willing to lift a finger to move them.
    Everything they do is done for people to see: They make their phylacteries wide and the tassels on their garments long; they love the place of honor at banquets and the most important seats in the synagogues; they love to be greeted with respect in the marketplaces and to be called ‘Rabbi’ by others.
    “But you are not to be called ‘Rabbi,’ for you have one Teacher, and you are all brothers. And do not call anyone on earth ‘father,’ for you have one Father, and he is in heaven. Nor are you to be called instructors, for you have one Instructor, the Messiah. The greatest among you will be your servant. For those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted".

    You shall not make for yourself an image in the form of anything, in Heaven above or in the Earth beneath, or in the waters below. You shall not bow down to them or worship them, for I the Lord your God am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the parents up to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me, but showing love to a thousand generations of those who love me and keep my commandments.
    If my people who are called by my name, humble themselves and pray, AND TURN FROM THEIR WICKED WAYS, I will hear from Heaven, will forgive their sins, and will heal their land.

    And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by others. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full. But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you. And when you pray, do not keep on babbling like pagans, for they think they will be heard because of their many words. Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him.

    This, then, is how you should pray:

    Our Father in heaven,
    hallowed be your name,
    your kingdom come,
    your will be done,
    on earth as it is in heaven.
    Give us today our daily bread.
    And forgive us our debts,
    as we also have forgiven our debtors.
    And lead us not into temptation,
    but deliver us from the evil one.

    For if you forgive other people when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive others their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins.

    "Matthew 5-7 NIV Bible Gateway", we can use google search.
    These are the teachings,
    The Righteousness of our Lord Jesus Christ our God.
    REPENT, and start doing what is right.
    If you abide my teachings, you are really my disciples; then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.

    A time is coming and has now come, that the true worshipers will worship the Father in Spirit and Truth. God is Spirit, so his worshipers must worship in the Spirit and Truth; they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks.

    In the New Heaven and New Earth,
    only Righteousness dwells.
    May the Spirit of our Lord Jesus Christ our God be with you all.

  24. Between me and the ol lady we have lost a combined 5 family members to the coronavirus so far…which is accumulated on top of a combined 7 for the year of 2019 alone. So F'd up…

It's very sociopathic of you, as a nation.
